Lucia Gallegos, Registered Psychotherapist
I help women who experience self-doubt, and feel anxious and stuck in their lives, to build fierce confidence and reconnect with themselves.
I´ve experienced a life full of many changes.
This personal journey has allowed me to see transitions as a natural part of life.
As one of my favorite quotes says, “Change is hard at first, messy in the middle, and gorgeous at the end”.
Born in Mexico and now living in Toronto for over 13 years, I know the joys and challenges that come with moving to a new country.
Leaving my beloved family and friends behind and starting my life in Canada was a transition full of emotional highs and lows. This experience has taught me that sometimes difficult paths lead to beautiful destinations.
Before pursuing my psychology degree, I worked in Public Relations and Marketing where I discovered that the most effective communication comes through listening to others with empathy and compassion. These insights and skills inspired me to change careers and become a therapist.
Live Your Life in Full Bloom!
I love hearing other people’s stories. I seek out podcasts on comedy and enjoy making other people laugh.
One of my other great loves is eating and tasting food. As a therapist who is doing her own work, I include walking and meditation in my self-care routine.
My daily intention is focused on building healthy boundaries. Part of this process has involved reconnecting with my anger and developing kindness as a way to build my own fierce confidence.
I bring my unique personal perspective and professional experience to my therapy practice. I am passionate about helping other women find magic and meaning in this new place they call home.
By offering virtual therapy in both Spanish and English, I can help you to explore and express your thoughts and feelings in a way that feels most comfortable to you.
Working together, we can help you discover how to thrive in a new culture and climate and become your own beautiful ‘flower in winter’.
